After worsening menstrual pain being shrugged off by other gynecologiststs for a decade, Dr. Thorn diagnosed and treated me for endometriosis in a matter of a month.

Review of Dr. Eckstrom

-

Strongly advise you NOT use Dr. Ekstrom. His treatment of me was disrespectful, inconsiderate, and very disruptive to my life. After searching, we have found a much more qualified surgeon at twin cities orthopedics.

Review of Dr. Boyce

-

Dr. Boyce's approach to medicine is greatly appreciated by us, to the point where we'd follow him for care if he moved on. He's kind, listens if we have concerns, and is willing to consider our thoughts, concerns, and desires, when he makes medical decisions regarding our family. We used him for well checks for our children as well.

Review of Dr. Vishwakarma

- in Salem, OR |

I went to Dr. Vishwakarma for a painful leg. I thought it was a muscle strain but he immediately diagnosed several other alternatives. He was the third healthcare specialist I went to for my pain, and he was the first to offer a true solution. This morning, after our visit last night, was the first pain-free day in three months. In addition to being highly skilled, Dr. Vishwakarma was also attentive, friendly and courteous.

Review of Dr. Severson

- in Brainerd, MN |

Dr. Eric Severson is an outstanding Orthopedic Surgeon. He did hip revisions on both my hips which had been replaced over 20 years prior, and I am doing very well. It is amazing to walk pain free again. I highly recommend him. He is extremely focused on no post surgical infections, which I feel is so important. He has a great bedside manner, friendly, precise in articulating my problems to me. Decisive and does not "beat around the bush". Thank you Dr. Severson.

Review of Dr. Krupa

-

Straub ICU Experience Dr. Krupa made sure he did everything to keep my dad alive. Although he was busy with other critical patients, he still made time to speak with me for a few mins about my father's condition to calm my concerns. He drew everything out and clearly explained everything so that I could understand what was going on. Takes a lot to have a busy mind thinking of all the emergencies during your day still remaining calm as if theres no stress. Thankful & blessed he's around. -Tiff

Review of Dr. Thorn

- in Wichita, KS |

Years ago, I lost a child in labor. When I got pregnant with my second child, also a girl, Dr. Thorn was there for me the whole time. At that point, he worked at what was Naeve Hospital (now Albert Lea Mayo Clinic Health System) and I decided to enroll with him after a friend recommended him as "the best OB at Albert Lea." They weren't kidding. I could write an essay about his compassion, his professionalism and his knowledge. Dr. Thorn is an excellent physician and an outstanding human being.

Review of Dr. Thorn

-Waverly, IA |

Dr. Thorn goes above and beyond for his patients! Sometimes there is a wait to see him, but he makes every patient feel like they are his top priority. He is very attentive to infertility patients and has a fantastic bedside manner. Mercy was smart to set him from Mayo!

Review of Dr. Samson

-St Paul, MN |

Be very careful when seeing Dr. Samson. The assessment completed by her was performed on behalf of a workman's comp case and was, frankly, completely wrong & inaccurate. The conclusions made were neither objective or correct and the rpt she issued was also worded carefully as to not expose her to liability - yet she received payment for services rendered by the WC's Insur. Her rpt and correspndng cnclusons were so one-sided in favor of the WC insur objectivity couldn't have been part of her deal
